is live in los angeles at the hangar there, and, george, are you with us? i don't know if george is -- >> reporter: yeah, dylan, inside the hangar, just, you're whoing at the plane just outside the hangar. i'm just on the other side of the door and we're obviously awaiting president clinton and the freed journalists to come inside and have a few words with us. >> what is your sense, george, how those journalists will spend the next hour of their day? first hour back in america? >> well, we're being told that they're going to have a family reunion at home rather than here at the hangar. that they're going to have private time with the families and then maybe come out and talk to us later on in the afternoon. so we're going to have to wait and see. we don't -- they appear to be in fairly good shape as they boarded the plane in pyongyang in north korea under their own esteem, and we'll have to wait and see how tired they are, what kind of shape they're in. >> so other than the obvious press gaggle in that hangar, and i presume security personnel, et cetera who else is there to greet

"dr. klein has always had a special relationship with paris, katherine and prince michael, loves and cares deeply for these children and is looking out for their best interests." courtney hazlett is in burbank. when we heard him say he's not the father of the two older children this
on in afghanistan. >>> and mark sanford fighting claims he used state transportation to have hair appointments and attending his son's sporting events. how can people that have such great leadership be such terrible employees? interesting contrast. when is enough enough? when should he resign? coming up, it's 9:00 a.m. it's monday morning, and pull up a chair and enjoy the morning meeting. welcome to the "morning meeting." contessa joins us today. and jonathan kacapehart joins u today. and every year, contessa, since '57, they introduced a health care bill into the u.s. congress. at the very least it will be interesting to see if this path is more constructive than all of the failed path that comes before that. >> first let's talk about the headlines. right now divers are searching for two of the remaining victims of the crash between the sightseeing helicopter and a small plane. the pilot and five italian tourists have been found. and they found the body of one teenager boy aboard the plane. federal investigators don't know what caused the midair collision. coming up, we will get a live repor
's useful or not, there are honest fears about this change, and particularly fears what does it mean for me when i get toward the end of my life, when i feel i am in need of meaningful health care. could i have that made by the health insurance company saying you can or can't, or would i rather have that exact same decision being made by a government board at the same time, you cannot or can't. when we get delusional when we believe that decision is not already being made constantly in the health care system, in the army. we price life every day. life insurance companies do it. this is constantly happening. we are doing math based on life. >> yeah, if you talk to people about their current health insurance, and how difficult it is to get the paperwork and coverage and argue about whether certain treatments are covered. it's already a mess. and so for people that say we don't need to reform health care, they are not thinking about the way it really is right now. >> or they are not thinking about the overall picture, and that's not to say -- and this is just my opinion, i guess. jonathan cape
of the federal reserve. jonathan cape cart, karen finney. back with us in person. lovely, each one lovelier than the next, shall we say. bill, i will begin with you. first off, your thoughts on the president's decision, period. >> i don't think it is surprising. we have chosen to go down the path of the hairful dog that bit us, if you will. the policy for the last 20 years has been print money, print too much money, cause a bubble. have a collapse. print more money and we are back on that path which i think we were going to be on. we can argue whether or not we should have gone down the path but this is the one we have chosen. fairly slam dunk they would reappoint bernanke. >> i think that's exactly right. politically speaking, i mean, take -- politically speaking he really had to do this in order to -- couldn't take on another battle. let's be honest. trying to -- insert his own person. and also, this kind of gives him a little bit of a sense of stability with the gop and he can take them on another front and -- also helps him with the moderate republicans and independents that voted for him an
what was done by u.s. operatives to for suspects being released. >>> meanwhile, dramatic rescue caught on tape after an enormous wave from hurricane bill sweeps more than a folks off a pier, and it killed a 7-year-old girl. new details in the death of a model, now her reality star husband has been found dead. his mother-in-law speaks out in an exclusive interview. >>> and michael steele coming out with a new gop line of attack on health care reform, and protecting our seniors. we will get a response from a key democratic in the house. pull up a chair. >>> we begin with the office of professional responsibility. it's part of the justice department urging eric holder to reopen nearly a dozen cases in which cia interrogators abused terror subjects. and the cia report may push mr. holder in that direction. we have the latest from the pentagon. >> reporter: it's going to be a rough week for the cia. later today, instead of being forced to a lawsuit brought against them to release a classified report by the inspector general, the cia inspector general, into aggressive interrogation technique
to libya. >> thank you. on the phone with us, senator frank lautenberg, democrat from new jersey. your thoughts? >> well, my thoughts are, first of all, disappointing, because when we talk about compassion for megrahi and think about what he did to 270 families across the world, it's outrageous. these were young people typically. a lot of them had been students abroad, coming home to meet their families. it was christmas. and there was no compassion there and there was no thought of family reunion, and here we want to show pity to this evil individual who brought down that airplane and reunite him with his family? i think it's outrageous. >> what of this? libya, as you likely know, has the largest oil reserves in africa. the united kingdom currently imports, i don't know, 30%, 40% of its oil from the gulf of sidrah or libya. it is believed by 2015 the united kingdom could double that number to 80% of their oil coming from the united kingdom. is that, quite simply, the trade of a terrorist for access to oil fields? >> well, it would be terrible if that was the case. that we surrender ou
to have you joining the conversation. we thank you for making the time for us. gerald, on the one hand, i can see the desire to get engaged. on the other hand, it runs the risk of further violence. what does the aflcio intend to do when you say ul engage demonstrators? >> we always urge our participators. this is no different, but with the mobs going around, we have said to people, look, we need to make sure that the congressmen know there are people who support cost control. >> what responsibility do you have to ensure that you observe and encourage a level of civility and behavior? >> we've been doing this stuff for 20 years and always encourage people to show up for town hall meetings. we never tell people to shout. we always tell people to be respectful. we tell them to know, to understand the issues, but also to be assertive and get answers. i think what you're seeing out there is a lot of frustration with a process that was fast-tracked, not transparent. the president and the democrats in congress tried to ram this package through even before the august recess. it's understandable p
, dylan radigan. >>> good morning. contessa is off, chris jansing will join us for the balance of the day. mr. capehart is here. >>> the lockerbie bomber may be getting moved back to libya. families of victims of that bombing will join us. is this a game of oil politics using a convicted terrorist as leverage? we'll have that conversation. >>> also, hillary clinton on the one hand tina brown says she's doing a spectacular job, great six months. at the same time there is this nasty web clip of her carrying on. then the generational divide. is health care quite simply about old and young and at what point do the young in this country say enough is enough. there's our friend secretary of state hillary clinton. i've referenced her just a second ago. again, we'll talk about her past six months. but let us begin first here with the lockerbie story. >>> i think we have stephanie gosk live at the libyan embassy in london but i'm not sure. stephanie, are you there? >> reporter: i'm here. i'm actually in our london bureau at the moment, dylan. can you hear me? >> yeah, i can hear you. can you hear
. chris matthews, thanks for being with us. i know you have to go. let's go to anne thompson. anne, we are at the top of the hour. president obama was going to give a speech at 8:30, a press conference talking about the life and legacy of ted kennedy. it's been pushed back. what is the latest? >> reporter: we understand president obama will address reporters about 9:30 this morning. we do not know what the delay is. i can tell you here, at hyannisport we have seen a priest go into the kennedy compound. we could see someone walking one of senator kennedy's portuguese water dogs by the ocean. he loved those dogs. they were very, very dear to him. he passed away late last night according to a family statement issued at 1:30 this morning. in the statement, the family spoke of the irreplaceable man, the center of their lives, who fought for justice, they were so proud of him. he was so optimistic. it's hard to believe he will no longer be here. in may of 2008, senator kennedy was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. he traveled to duke university where part of the tumor was removed. he c
it was cash for clunkers. now cash for used cars. and cash for kribz. maybe an air-conditioner. what do you have? it's 9:00 a.m. join the "morning meeting." >>> good morning, to you. we begin with the masses joining this morning to pay their final respect to the late senator, ted kennedy. the doors opened about an hour ago. 25,000 already passed by. his body lying in repose. mike taibbi in boston before an incredible scene. >> reporter: yes, this is an incredible scene. there was a 70 mile trip that began with 82 members of the kennedy family, and then others who came out to mourn including jesse jackson. and several family members made it a point to personally greet the mourners. >> we are so honored so many people came tout to pay tribute to my husband, and i wanted to thank them. that's the only message here tonight. >> thank you so much for coming. >> you look great. >> you do, too. >> thank you for coming. >>> as you said, dylan, the lines began to form well before 5:00 this morning. i was listening to my first live reports at 4:00 a.m. when people started to gather here at the site of
and has a public option in it. >> tell us what you consider to be a critical difference between a country with a public option and a country with a co-op of some kind? >> it's easy to articulate. what you have to do is think about medicare. it's a program that covers everybody. it's much greater efficiency than private insurance. it works really well for most people. most people like it. but not everybody likes it. what the president said, if you like your insurance, and 65% of the people in the country have insurance and like it, but it's too expensive and they know it. but for those that you who lose your job or your insurance, and you get sick and the insurance people kick you off their policy, a public option, and that's -- you ought to be able to sign up for that. the simplest way to think about this, people under 65 will be able to sign up for something like medicare if they want to. >> yeah, you can create a choice and portability, but you run into a cost issue. how do you manage the expense of this overall process and still provide the universauniversaltyu would see. >> well, medi
investigated five years ago who acted with no criminal motive. their sole motive was to keep us safe. they solicited a number of plots and identities and kept us safe for eight years. >> well, that's up to interpretation. that's a question that has been disputed, about how much legitimate information was gotten through these extreme -- >> well, there was a memo that had all the information. i put a lot of it in my own column. >> well, how do you level it out? here is what john mccain said on "face the nation." >> i think these interrogations once publicized helped al qaeda recruit. i think the ability of us to work with our allies was harmed. i believe the information, according to the fbi and others, could have been gained through other methods. >> if the interrogations themselves have helped al qaeda recruit members, isn't that more damage than what it was worth? >> well, can i say something about that, contessa? >> ron, go ahead. >> it was leaked on the front page of the "new york times." i don't see the same level of outrage about individuals that took classified information and
in massachusetts. what does this tell us, if anything, about senator kennedy? >> reporter: what it does, dylan is confirm that his health is precarious. this is a difficult time for the kennedy family. his wife will be here. i did talk to bobby kennedy jr., one of his many nephews yesterday about it. this is what bobby had to say about uncle ted. >> ted is having his own struggles right now. but he is doing well. he was sailing. i saw him out on the boat yesterday. he was going sailing every day, and keeping up with his work. >> reporter: keeping up with his work, but of course the other piece of this, dylan, is his absence on the floor of the senate and in the cois a big va. and the authority, the skill, the legislative skill of the line of the senate is what is really missing for the obama white house here in this health care debate. >> mike barnicle is also on the phone with us here. mike, are you there. >> i am here, dylan. >> who else are you expecting in attendance today? describe the event that you yourself is on the way to? what is building here? >> well, you know, it's, again, unfortu
it for tax cuts or patients. the problem is we need some force, some government force that can get us altogether as a group and say we are going to negotiate for lower prices. that's what the public plan is all about. >> totally understood. i guess what confuses me a bit is why the best way to go about doing that is to create a government-run health care company as opposed to things that would make for other competitive markets for health insurance and for those that cannot afford it? >> well, we don't need to create government -- >> i misspoke. the only way to fight the government is to use a public option, or do we have enough control in the government where we can create more competitive markets for health care? >> the government does not have much control over the health care industry right now. we here in new york city have a lot more choices. there is not a lot of competition. i put it to you this way. how much true competition is there, when you go to york wour workplace, and -- >> well, is the public option the only way to create the choice? >> allowing health care companies t
iran. >> thank you. >>> joining us now the author of "how to win a cosmic war" and also contributor to the daily has been writing extensively about the reform movement in iran. also with us for the two hours, the author of "the black swan" and widely essayist at this point on the systems that run our economy and how they have failed us. and more importantly, how we can fix them. also with us jonathan capehart, msnbc editorial writer for "the washington post" and certainly a panelist here at the meeting keeping us up to speed as he does so gracefully and wonderfully every day on the comings and goings in washington, d.c. and the policy debates. the first part of my question i suppose is whether there is any chance ahmadinejad doesn't ultimately end up in this job. whatever the theater is in getting there, is the end game six months from now president ahmadinejad take two? >> there is no question that ahmadinejad will be inaugurated as president and begin his second term on august 5th. that isn't necessarily good news for ahmadinejad or for the conservative movement in iran.

night. nbc's peter alexander is following that story live for us from hyannis port. oh, mike is also joining us. mike will be along in just a second looking at the political implications, but we begin with the motorcade. hi, peter. >> dillon, good to give with you. as one of the headlines reads, the lion rests. and today, that is the case. the family has been standing vigil inside the compound. this morning, we have seen some members of the family. at about 1:00 today, this motorcade will begin. it will drive 70 miles into boston. it will follow the route of celebrated life of this man and is remember, the trail, as some have described it from here, along that path it's the sight of the presidential library on its way. the church where he prayed with his daughter, k a ra, that's where things will wind up today. among those stops, the car will pass by fenal hall where the mayor will toll the bell 47 times for the 47 years ted kennedy served in the senate here. finally, it will end up at the church as we noted where he celebrated the life of his daughter, kara, where he had cancer. tim
. >> thank you, savannah. >>> we have one of 52 blue dogs, and jonathan capehart with us, and michelle bernard, ceo of women women's foreman. what are some of the poll results? >> there is a lot of miss information out there. i think once the public understands more about the public options, and nobody should force anybody to do anything, it's a free country. i think they will see the president is exactly right. we have to do something, because the concern the system is not working. two, there are a lot of good choices out there where we can improve the peoples' choices where they can live longer and healthier. this is ultimately a good news story, and a lot of folks don't understand it that way so far. >> what would you focus peoples' attention on so they see the world more the way you do? >> well, i have always said health care has to be bipartisan. it's painful sometimes to work with folks across the aisle, but i have done it success fully for decades. as a practical matter in the u.s. senate, it's going to take 60 votes to pass the bill. we have to have a strategy that gets to 60.
